    Digital currency to be UK's Leading Spending Method by 2016

    Since Paypal is dependent on actual currency to exist and function (dollar, pound, etc), then I wouldn't really call it "digital currency" if it has to be backed by true currency. Bitcoin on the other hand.....

    6770 Aftermarket Cooling

    It's a mouthful, but Arctic Cooling Accelero TWIN TURBO II works like a flippin champ. Nearly 35c load temp difference from the black orb heatsink. Granted I had to mod it a little bit with a dremel after the arctic epoxy I used on the ram/mosfet sinks cured (somewhat my fault).

    6770 Aftermarket Cooling

    I have an XFX 6770 (the one with the black orb type heatsink). I'm trying to find a decent replacement heatsink for it. I'm not water cooling at this time, so I'm looking for an air cooling solution.

    2TB Ammo Can

    The ammo can was damaged when a pipe burst in the room while I was on vacation. AC/DC brick shorted out. I've decided to upgrade it..somewhat. I put the 2TB drive in my main machine. The upgrades to the ammo can (will post pics in a day or 2) are: Zotac Iontix A-U (modded the DC jack to add...

    I don't know why, but I never looked at that angle.

    Power supply - 90w Enough?

    That's what I'm thinking. For the sake of the math, I'll say every review on the board pointing to power consumption says 50 watt under load (actually a bit less), a 3.5 drive should be around 10 to 12 watt, 2 watt for SDD, USB powered optical drive probably doesn't use as much power as the 3.5...

    2TB Ammo Can

    Only problem is finding the time to get to the surplus store to look for more ammo cans that are in halfway decent shape (99% of the retailers on the net charge quite a bit for shipping which is understandable given their size/weight).
